(DiverWire) The Siren Fleet this week announced a brand-new live-aboard vessel that will soon be exploring Fiji. The newly built yacht will be named the S/Y Fiji Siren and is being constructed along the lines of her sister ships with the same luxury outfit as all the other Siren Fleet yachts. At a length of 40m/130ft and a beam of 10m/33ft she will host 16 divers in 8 a/c en-suite cabins along with providing all the Siren Fleet regular features such as camera stations, spacious dive deck, sun deck and outdoor dining can be expected. And with a crew of 12 the S/Y Fiji Siren is set to be by far the most luxury boat in Fiji.
The founder of Worldwide Dive and Sail, Frank van der Linde, who also builds the Siren Fleet yachts, has confirmed that the building is ahead of schedule and that the boat will be ready by April 2013. This will allow plenty of time for the S/Y Fiji Siren to stretch her sea legs and make the journey to Fiji from Indonesia ready to begin cruises in October.
The S/Y Fiji Siren will offer 7 and 10 night liveaboard diving safaris to Fiji in conjunction with the Darling family run Volivoli Beach Resort. Divers will be able to combine the local sites of Viti Levu, Bligh Waters and the Vatu-I Ra Passage with a liveaboard cruise to the Somosomo strait, Savusavu and the Lomaiviti Islands with the final day being spent watching spinner dolphins. We will also offer excursions to Beqa Lagoon, one of the most renowned shark dives in Fiji.
Trips will depart from Volivoli Beach Resort, just 2.5 hours scenic drive from the Nadi Airport on the northern coast of Viti Levu. The resort is owned and managed by the Darling family, who settled in Fiji from New Zealand in 1993, provides “laid back luxury” and is renowned for its friendly and helpful staff, not just at the resort but the Ra Divers operations also. Their knowledge and vast experience of Fiji joined with Siren Fleet’s liveaboard know-how and exceptional service is bound to be a winning combination.
Prices start from 2350Euro per person and group bookings are welcomed. Reserve your place aboard the S/Y Fiji Siren today!
